The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) proudly announces architect Mac Stopa as the recipient of the 2017 IIDA Titan Award. The Titan Award recognizes significant contributions to the Interior Design profession by an individual, company, or organization in the field. Stopa will be presented with the honour and celebrated at the IIDA Annual Meeting on Sunday, June 11, 2017, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
“Mac’s work spans architecture, interior design, industrial design, art, and fashion, allowing his multi-disciplinary sensibility to both inspire the industry and deeply influence how spaces are experienced,” said IIDA Executive Vice President and CEO Cheryl Durst, Hon. FIIDA, LEED AP. “With a passion for mathematics, he is leading the way for flexible design that is customized and adaptable to the environment and the end user. We are so pleased to honour Mac Stopa as the recipient of this year’s IIDA Titan Award.”
Stopa is founder of Massive Design, an award-winning architectural design firm specializing in corporate interiors for Fortune and Global 500 companies, designing public spaces, architecture, and industrial design. His clients include Google, Samsung, BMW, MasterCard, Credit Suisse, Viacom, and Bacardi-Martini, and he has designed products for Mohawk Group, Cappellini, Laminam, DuPont, and Milliken.
Mac’s designs emanate from his fascination with parametrically driven design, organic geometry, modularity, sculptural shapes, and digital art, which compels him to create modular objects for serial production that introduce innovation to the market and allow the user to interact with and adapt the objects to the required functionality or character of a space. Since 2013, Stopa’s designs have received over 60 international design awards, including multiple Red Dot Design Awards, GOOD DESIGN™ Awards, Interior Design’s Best of Year Awards, a Best of NeoCon Gold Award, and ICONIC AWARDS: Interior Innovation, including a Best of Best Award 2017, among others.
